You Sir are ignorant.
12 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Jbach claims to like shitty movies but clearly he has no idea what a shitty movie is because Snake Eater is quite good compared to a lot of movies out there. Lorenzo Lamas is a pretty darn good actor, if you ever seen his series Renegade you'd agree. I gave it a 10 because its a good watch and its got good ole comedy you don't hardly see these days. You can't expect an old movie such as this to have really great acting, yeah some of it is bad but overall this is a great movie. Jback needs to refrain from being a movie critic because he clearly lacks the know how. I have yet to see the 2nd or 3rd but I am sure they will be good also.
